Sunday Snapshot~ Names


{N. A. Noel}
I knew their names would come soon and though a part of me was dreading it, I wanted to know them. I read over each and every name carefully. One has a birthday on Halloween. One just turned seven a few days ago, and one was born on my parents wedding anniversary. One shares a name with my oldest and another a name with my youngest. One was born on my wedding anniversary. As heartbroken as I am, I just can't fathom the loss that each of those parents and family members is feeling. It's unspeakable, and my heart hurts for them. I feel like the only thing we can do is pray... and to know them and not forget them.

Isaiah 40:11
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
